comment I accidentally typed my password into the login field, is it still secure?
@Gilles: I don't see the difference (assuming your password is secure and you're not re-using it elsewhere). And if as an admin you give logs to someone you don't trust, then you're the one compromising your system's security. With regards to leaks, I also feel like this would be the lesser of your concerns if someone unauthorized could read your log files...

Uh, correct me if I'm wrong but generally the only people who will see these logs are the ones who could already have access to your data if they wanted. So what if they see their password? What's the big deal?

answered On Unix systems, why do we have to explicitly `open()` and `close()` files to be able to `read()` or `write()` them?

comment Is it a UUOC (useless use of cat) to redirect one file to another?
@Wildcard I'd have preferred "pump" over "shovel", but still a good word. +1

Wow, way to completely disappoint me when I clicked the title of this question on the Hot Network Questions list. So much for coming to see a cat!

comment Do I need swap space if I have more than enough amount of RAM?
-1 this answer makes no sense. Why the heck would having slower memory (swap) have better performance than the same amount of faster memory (RAM)?? at some point you have to acknowledge enough RAM means no swap is necessary..

comment Do I need swap space if I have more than enough amount of RAM?
@Davidmh: sure, but price is not part of the question here. The question is if you have enough money to buy whatever you want, do you still need swap if you have 16 GB of RAM? You're avoiding the question.

comment Do I need swap space if I have more than enough amount of RAM?
@Davidmh: My point is that if you have X GB of RAM and Y GB of swap, it is strictly worse than X + Y GB of RAM and 0 GB of swap. What is X + Y in your case?
